. >> he got barack obama elected. that's the view of "time" magazine. >> bill: isn't that a partisan thing? i mean maybe that's true but isn't that a partisan thing? he is a person of the year. >> i think you might be on to something. i think there might be partisanship over at "time" magazine. >> bill: that shouldn't be. that's not what we are in business to do here. >> let me make a bold prediction here. it's going to be barack obama. >> bill: yes, it will. that's what i said and you are right. if you agree with me you are right. this is what we should always -- >> i know how to works. [ laughter ] >> bill: he would have to be because the president overcame vast odds and shut have lost the election. let's be honest with the economic profile that we have and he won. did he something extraordinary and that i think has to be criteria. you can't discount psy.

ready to go. >> obama: democrats in the house are ready to vote for that same bill today. if we can get a few house republicans to agree as well, i'll sign this bill as soon as congress sends it my way. i gotta repeat, i've got a pen. i'm ready to sign it. >> bill: he held up his pen. i've got a pen. he says a few house republicans that's right, you don't need that many but you need to bring it up for a vote. boehner won't do it. why won't boehner do it because boehner says that still says -- he's just dead ass wrong he still says that raising taxes on the wealthiest of americans on the 2% would cost -- would kill jobs and kill the economy and we know from the eight years under bill clinton proven just the opposite. in the eight years under george bush proven when you do give tax cuts to the rich, the economy doesn't soar, it sinks. president obama finally part of their campaign yesterday always very clever. obama operation. they came up with a way for all americans to be able to sound off on this issue. he noted t
galvanizing the country for president obama, big bill is back there working his fan base again offering donors the chance to spend time with him. >>> next, remember when georgia congressman paul brawn braun offered this account of how old the earth is? >> there's a lot of scene tisk data that i found out as a scientist that shows this is really a young earth. i don't think the oert is 9,000 years old. >> browne is not alone. when marco rubio was asked about the age of a planet in a recent interview, he dodged it saying i'm not a scientist, man. now televangelist pat robertson of all people is weighing in but not in a way you might expect. we're going to have pat robison back. pat robertson saying the earth is very, very old. we should believe the artifacts and the paleontology. >>> final a real about face for the guy who had the romney campaign logo tattooed on his face before the election in exchange for a $5,000 payment. when romney lost, he said he was keeping the tattoo anyway. then he got caught wind of romney saying the president won the re-election by giving gifts to minority voters. no
for townhall.com. you're much smarter than obama than i am. he's saying he wants the senate democratic bill, which will raise the top tax rates and therefore is rejecting john boehner's conciliatory idea of limiting tax deductions. is that the way it is? boehner just got dissed today? >> i think the president is reminding republicans that they lost and that after a vigorous come pain with many of the same ideas that the republicans are trying to defend now, that's goinged not -- if he's serious, he'll willing to make a deal but he's not willing to make a bad deal. on that the president is very firm. >> i wonder if he doesn't want high tax rates and caps on deductions so he can have more revenue to spend. the reason i have that logic is once again today at this campaign rally, or whatever today was, he didn't mention the word spending cut, never once. >> it's not in his vocabulary. one thing we know about president obama is he campaigns to the middle but he kind of straights from the left and what i fully anticipate is there's a reason why dick durbin, who was his senate partner from oil kno
. that's the third way. president obama submitted to congress the american jobs act last september. so are you suggesting -- are you suggesting that that bill be passed? are you suggesting that it be reworked, junked and recreated? the second part of that question is, what are you going to do? what is now going to do to ensure that it gets passed? >> i would really much rather representative john connier's jobs bill be passed. it's much more aggressive. january ja cow ski also has a wonderful jobs bill. president obama's is much more modst. but it does lead us beginning in the right direction. we are very -- my organization is very much supporting both the schakowsky and conniers bill. and the american jobs act from president obama as well. we are working to try to get attention in the congress to those measures. and i think it's important to -- to simply make the point that although jobs are coming back in the private sector, the government has an important role to play in creating a massive jobs program that will generate the kind of consumer demand that will then cause the private s
that our country has. bill: peter doocy is live, was there movement overnight? >> it sounds like things might be stuck. a senior administration official told us that president obama and john boehner had a phone wallace night and politico was reporting that the phone call was curt. they said on the call john boehner told the president to leave the tax cuts for the rich alone. the president says he doesn't want to do that. he's going to stick with his plan to raise $1.6 billion in revenue and if republicans have something better they should be specific now. eric cantor said republicans are already going further than they did in the same spot in 2010. >> we have done our part. we have put revenues on the table, something we didn't do two years ago during the debt ceiling negotiations. >> we've seen some positive developments in the last several weeks, in terms of what republicans have been saying about the need for revenue as part of a balanced package. the president will continue to make the case that that is essential. >> reporter: so both sides saying revenue is on the table, now the fi
you like them apples, bill some. >> who took those apples and made us heavily in debt? >> ending big government as we know it, that's not going to happen under obama. he will get the taxes and go right on spending, bill. >> i don't know. he said he wouldn't. >> let's not gang up on bill. she turned christmas cheer into a cruel jeer. a louisiana woman rigged her lights to look like a middle finger. apparently a mess seeming to her neighbors over some dispute. probably a recipe or something. cops told sara henderson that the display was involved in obscenity laws. but then she did because the aclu sniffed her out saying giving the bird is free speech. they sent a local letter saying henderson would be fine if she reinstalled the lights. there is a highly offensive christmas light display. and nobody said boo. several years ago they shed light on the perversity in our midtown midst. >> as you know there are thousands of amazing light displays around the city this time of year, but none more incredible than the one here at 49th and 6th. we'll ask a few people what they think. when you lo

of a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff by christmas. president obama says he would like congress to pass a bill even sooner to extend tax cuts for the middle class families. and he invited some of those middle class americans to the white house today to help make his case. >> i have got a pen. [ laughter ] i'm ready to sign it. [ applause ] so, my point here today is is to say let's approach this problem with the middle class in mind. the folks who are behind me and the millions of people all across the country who they represent. >> shepard: well, republicans are saying they need some spending cuts. that they will also have to be part of the deal. and they are accusing the president of campaigning instead of negotiating. >> i mean, every week he spends campaigning for his ideas is a week that we are not solving the problem. it's completely counter productive. the election is over. he won. congratulations. and we have got a hard deadline here, however, and it's still he he is still out on the campaign trail, kind of celebrating. >> shepard: if the president and congress cannot cu
. >> interesting. bill ford jr. agrees with blankfein saying he's confident the obama administration can reach a deal with congress to avoid the fiscal cliff. but speaking with reporters in bangkok, ford says the automaker is prepared for any outcome. and it seems there's been a bit of a panic among retail investors in the credit market amid pointing fears other the fiscal cliff. our next guest says that could create buying opportunities. he's brian reynolds, chief market strategist. brian, good morning or good night, i guess i should say, depending on whether you've been to bed yet. >> good morning, kelly. >> thanks very much to joining us. talk a little bit about what we've seen in the credit market as the fiscal cliff approaches. should the nervousness be actually a buying opportunity here? >> it is a buying opportun especially from the perspective of the large state pension plans that drive the majority of the activity in the credit market. we saw retail investors panic a little bit, they sold some of their junk bond etfs, premiums narrowed a little bit. but in general, the credit market h
things in the stimulus bill. as an alternative, the obama administration wanted a stimulus measure in the deal to extend the bush era tax rates. they came up with the payroll tax cut as a replacement for the other tax credits. host: kim dixon is our guest from reuters. massive degree from columbia university -- a master's degree from columbia university. what other tax issues may be involved in the fiscal cliff issue? guest: the main issue of the individual cuts. the dispute is whether to extend the top two tax rates for the wealthiest taxpayers. the dividend taxes will expire and go from 15% to near 40% as the top rate. the estate tax is part of the cliff. host: we have a tweet we received from joe. guest: that is a good question. the employer part and the employee part are 6.2%. most economists think the 6.2% paid by the employer is passed on to the worker. in reduced wages and other -- host: our first call has just left the line. we have a tweet from save republican. guest: that is a tricky question. i'm not sure i can answer that. host: merit in pennsylvania on the republican l

have transparency and the reason it is particular fun is that obama promised he would do obamacare in front of c-span and didn't and said he would. and nancy pelosi, boehner and the president that bills would be online for a readable time. needs to be seven days. >> we are on c-span. we're online. and i want to be clear about this. you're not against new revenue? >> i'm certainly for new revenue for economic growth and to give you two numbers to set the stage. this is important. grow at 4% rather than 2%. reagan percentages rather than french or obama percentages, 4% rather than 2% for one decade that would net $5 trillion in additional revenue and pay down the debt obama ran up and pay down in a decade from stronger growth. you don't get stronger growth by raising taxes, but less growth. raising taxes doesn't give you the revenue but growth gives you the revenue. notin favor of real growth imaginary revenue. >> the flip side of the tom cole argument, if you don't agree to a small tax hike now, tax hike, there will be a much bigger tax hike to take place which would be everyone's t
leadership has said he now agrees with president obama on taxes. >> we agree with the president on that. >> congressman cole said he thinks the house of representatives should simply pass the bill that has passed the senate, preserving the current tax rates for all except those in the top brackets, which would revert to the clinton tax rates. the current rates are expected to expire on new year's eve, all of them, and congressman cole has decided it's time to face reality. >> these tax rates are going up automatically unless congress acts. to save as many of them as possible. >> the newest republican defector from grover norquist's pledge has instantly become as good a sales man for higher top tax rates as any democrat. >> right now, congress can pass a law that would prevent a tax hike on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. everybody's. even the wealthiest americans would still get a tax cut on the first $250,000 of their income. it's not like folks who make more than 250 aren't getting a tax break, they've getting a tax break on the first 250, just like everybody else. >> congre
romney and president obama. enjoy that. it can be soon be harder for the president to spy on your e-mail, a senate committee approve add bill to force the feds to actually get a search warrant before rooting through your electronic communications like e-mails and text to the banks. investigators can read through your e-mail to the bank as much as they want as long as the messages are more than six months old. the current law is from 1986 requiring agents to is a search warrant for e-mails that were "newer than six months." at the time, most e-mails were, hello? it was 1986? the rats were still spinning on the air creating the electricity to power your computer. the justice department is resisting changes because they want to go in our stuff when they want. those officials say investigations will take longer if we have to go through that problem with the judge signing off on everything. we have a judge. andrew napolitano crackles like a hen. >>judge napolitano: i can remember signing search warrants at 2:00 in the morning and a colleague signed the search warrant at the back of a mot
it in the fact that president obama's out there campaigning instead of sitting down with john boehner, running around pushing for a bill to increase -- extend just the middle class tax cuts which he knows republicans will never do. you can see it in the fact that 33 senate democrats signed this letter which says, quote, we will oppose including social security cuts for current or future pen fisheries in any -- beneficiaries at any time. that's signed by harry reid. senator durbin giving a speech saying no touching medicare or medicaid in any year end package. so, basically, the democratic position is no changes to social security, no changes to medicare, no changes to medicaid, yet the mainstream media all you hear is three words: grover, grover, grover. all you hear is about republican intransigence on taxes. where are the stories about democratic intransigence on entitlements? it seems to me that what they want to do is go off the fiscal cliff, pocket the increase on the wealthy, the tax increase on the wealthy, and blame republicans for the middle class tax increases. and if that's what the
. >> the answer's no. the thing obama couldn't get last time and can get this time is more revenue even if congress refuses to ask. we go over the fiscal cliff rates reset under bill clinton and you're negotiating a tax cut not a tax increase. other thing the way weight of public opinion since that level has moved strongly against republicans. look who the public says they're going to blame if we go over the cliff, it's republicans because they see them as having forced the issue last time around, been willing to do this this time around. one reason boehner is grumbly and nervous because he doesn't have any leverage. >> i want to point this out. this is interesting in terms of the smoke and mirrors how this will play out for the republicans. in the "wall street journal" they write obama's flexible on highest tax rates. white house's flexibility, described by bowls, confirmed by the administration officials, could envision tax rates -- tax rate increase from the current level but was less than clinton era levels. if the republicans can say, we cut taxes from where they were under clinton

right now with president obama's action is a temporary measure. we need something permanent and this is always -- this has always been an issue that we needed to deal with in a humane rational way and if f this bill represents the place to start, that's great. >> suarez: well ear about to make a career move, a move for the people of your state. one thing voters said consistent through twelve was that they didn't get a sense that congress was getting much done. do you have optimism that the next congress is going to be different from this last one? >> i do. mostly because we have to. we're at a point on the fiscal issues where we actually have to reach an agreement and perhaps if we do so in this lame duck session or early the session then maybe than will set the stage for other areas as well. we've got to on the regulatory front deal with these issues in a partisan way as well. i'm anxious to get started there and hopefully we can. >> suarez: arizona's senator elect jeff flake, thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me on. >> brown: and you can watch our earlier intervi

with norah o'donnell. gayle king is off. we've been talking all morning about president obama and mitt romney. they're having lunch today at the white house. >> on election night, the president said he thinks he can work with his republican opponents to solve the nation's problems. and as bill plante reports, those post-election meetings have become somewhat of a tradition. bill, good morning! >> reporter: good morning, norah. you know, nice words were extended during the campaign, but no matter what they're really thinking, the winner and loser of any presidential election now routinely get together for at least a handshake, and sometimes a good deal more. it all began after the election of 1960, when president-elect john f. kennedy paid a call on richard nixon in florida. >> that '60 election was razor close, and kennedy barely won. and so, that moment when the two of them met, it kind of unified the country. >> reporter: but it hadn't always been that way. historians point out that franklin roosevelt never invited his predecessor, herbert hoover to the white house, and that fdr had harsh w
illness. it's an example of how you can form a friendship at these meetings. bill clinton had beat the sitting president, george herber walker bush, and they met similar to the way romney and obama are now, and now clinton and 41 are dear, close friends and have done many constructive things together around the world. i think, by and large, these meetings, the luncheon today, will be about optics. it's the photo ops. it's a chance to say america is united. there may be an opportunity here for mitt romney to come out and talk about the fiscal cliff or saying we must avoid falling off it towards something that could be helpful to the white house in the end. i remember back in 2008 it was john mccain that met with president obama. they met in his office in chicago. not at the white house. it seemed like that was the beginning, potentially of two leaders really working together. we have since seen that deteriorate. >> we can't judge personal kem tri. i think barack obama has more at stake in this lunch in the end than mitt romney. if obama can get romney to say something positive about
to not want to call it that but now i do. obama does care. he calls it obamacare because the republicans thought they could use it as an insult but it's actually a badge of honor. the affordable care act is estimated already with the bill we passed is estimated to save about $500 billion over the next 10 years. ms. jackson lee: that's right. mr. ellison: they say we only got to reform medicare. you know, there may be reforms to medicare that are important to do, but we already started that process with the affordable care act by reducing extra subsidies paid to medicare advantage plans. they said they were going to do it for cheaper. they did it for more. now we're saying, we are going to hold you to your word. and we used that -- closed the doughnut hole. also, reductions in the rate of growth and provider payments and efforts to make sure that medicare programs were more efficient and to reduce waste, fraud and abuse. so medicare will be reformed as we reform health care. as we move away from this fee for service, thch for this test, much for that test, they run a bunch of tests and yo
